Albert Tucker and Fred Williams painted the spectacular surrounds of the Springbrook rainforest while holidaying there together in 1971. The Australian landscape had been a creative focus for both of them for over a decade each having found a new appreciation for the local environment after spending time away from their homeland. Tucker the elder by thirteen years lived and travelled extensively overseas from 1947 until 1960 while Williams based himself in London between 1952 and 1956.

In the late 1960s the two artists began visiting each other’s studios and established a rapport. By then Tucker and his wife Barbara were settled on a bush-block in rural Hurstbridge on the outskirts of Melbourne. Their passion for the environment and its conservation had also led them to buy a tract of pristine rainforest at Springbrook in the Gold Coast hinterland a place of natural beauty and significance. They invited Fred and Lyn Williams and their three children to join them there in August 1971 when the family was making a road trip to Brisbane for an exhibition of Williams’s gouaches.
